NWA 6386 Dioginite
Gallery Quick Links
This gallery shows an NWA 6386 Dioginite meteorite thin section viewed in cross polarized light with the addition of retardation filters. Very beautiful material on the microscope.  If you ever get the chance to view meteorites on a cross polarized light microscope, don’t pass it up.  I try to capture the beauty with my micrographs but no matter what, the pictures fall short of the real thing, but here goes my attempt anyway!
This set is 160X
NWA 6386 Dioginite sample
For starters, this is a zoom set starting with the full thin section and ending with a magnification of 760X.  I focused in on one unusual looking inclusion.
And finally, 760X
